Foot falling asleep

I am a 52 year old man. I was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's 4 years ago.  At the time I would occassionally feel my left foot "falling asleep" when exercising.  This symptom has become worse over time and the rate at which it is getting worse is acceperating.  A month ago I felt the numbness and tingling in my foot mainly when my Parkinson's meds (sinemet and requip) were wearing off amd it was annoying but not painful.  Now I feel it almost all the time and often it can be very painful.  I am not overweight and I exercise daily.
